Soundcloud is a music-hosting service and music publishing tool which allowed musicians to share and distribute their music tracks. SoundCloud uses other social networks to spread music uploaded by its members. Users can place the widget on their own websites or blogs and then SoundCloud will automatically Tweet every track uploaded. Not all tracks are downloadable. If you don't see a "download" button, it means the user who uploaded it did not intend for it to be downloadable. Luckily, you could get the audio files by recording them. In this post, we will introduce you an effective way to record SoundCloud music with ease.
